WILLY WONKA JR. presented by Riverstone International Middle School.

Willy Wonka Jr. is the 5th musical production that Riverstone International School has presented to the community, following in the footsteps of such wonderful shows as “Oliver!”,  “Beauty and the Beast”, “Aladdin” and, of course, last year’s “Grease”.  It is always a thrill for students and adults to combine music, drama and dance with fabulous sets to provide heart-warming entertainment.  It is more of a thrill to see the student performers rise to the occasion, step out and take a risk, and be rewarded by a rousing reception.  Students work for 2 – 3 months, learning lines, songs and what it means to be part of a team.  They learn about persevering, being committed, being there for each other.  This is a unique experience for students in a Middle School in this valley.   So if you love chocolate, great entertainment, or supporting our kids we hope that you will join us at the Fulton Street Center for the Arts on Tuesday 28th or Wednesday 29th at 6:30pm.

“The course of true love never did run smooth”

Having to follow the highly acclaimed Grade 2 performance of Twelfth Night last week, was never going to be easy for the Idaho Shakespeare festival, but they put their best acting foot forward and delighted the crowd with a stunning performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Set to a back drop of graffiti art and 1980′s music, the players mesmerized the packed bleachers, receiving a standing ovation from an audience ranging from 3 to 70 years old!

Rat, Mole, Toad and Weasel made a very welcome stop at Riverstone yesterday evening courtesy of the Idaho Shakespeare festival. 

Parents, students and faculty were entertained by a specially adapted and captivating performance that included a brightly dressed Toad zooming around the gym in his treasured motor car….”poop poop”.

Idaho Shakespeare Festivals traveling groups of professional actors adapt plays especially for schools and perform them around the region with the same quality and attention to detail as their summer productions. 

A specially adapted for schools version of A Mid Summer Night’s Dream (set in the 1980′s) will be performed at school on Wednesday March 11, 2009 at 6pm.

The school is sponsoring this performance so that entrance is free to all our community.
